Health Care Professional Bond Information
A small home health care business can attract many legal issues due to the nature of the service provided. Normally, when you apply for a license in your state to become the manager of a small home health care business, you will be required to submit a bond agreement before being able to commence operation.
Your bond is in place to protect your clients from any kind of malpractice within your business. Your bond should not only meet the state requirements, but exceed them to ensure that you are covered for all the possibilities that may arise whilst running your business.
It is important to remember that the nurses in your employ are human beings, and humans can make mistakes. As their employer, you are liable for anything that may go wrong as they attend to a patient in their home. Whilst a nurse is with a client in their home, they have limited access to equipment should an emergency arise. Although your employees are trained to handle emergencies, a great number of things can go wrong.
Your bond agreement is to protect your clients from any malpractice that may occur whilst they are in the care of your staff. Your clients will be able to quickly recover any financial losses that may have been incurred through purposefully illegal acts committed by your employees.
Before you sign your bond agreement and pay fees that are due, you should have to documentation checked by your local government to ensure that you are meeting all the state requirements that are necessary to become licensed.
